Spider-Man gets a 4 from me.  Good acting, good character development, but something was missing...dunno what.

Hulk gets a 3.  WAAAAAAAAAAY too much wannabe character development, substandard acting, bad plot, but when Hulk smashed, it was glorious.

Daredevil gets maybe a 1.  Bullseye was the only redeeming quality.

Batman (the original 1960s one) should get a 5 for unintentional comedy ;D

Batman (with the Joker) gets a 5 because it is quite frankly one of the best comic book adaptations of all time.  Except the Joker dies, which sucks.

Batman Returns was good...I give it a 4 because Batman was such a wuss against Catwoman.  Batman can take out Catwoman without even breaking a sweat, not to take anything away from Catwoman, of course.  Batman's just a bad@$$.

Batman Forever gets a 3 because it was too campy and the Riddler and Two-Face were too nuts.  But it gets brownie points for showing what Batman SHOULD do, i.e. flying through the air on batropes and gliding with his batcape, not to mention street-fighting.

Batman and Robin gets a 1.  Whenever Ah-nuld is the best actor in a movie, you know something's wrong.

You should add:

Superman I-IV
X2: X-Men United
The Punisher (Dolph Lundgren version)
Blade II (my guilty pleasure)  ;D
The Phantom (with Billy Zane)
The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
Men In Black
Men In Black II

and lastly:

Blankman (with Damon Wayans and David Alan Grier) if only for the gadgets.  "Hold on!  Let me use the Speculum of Life!"  ;D ;D ;D
